Prepping for NaNoWriMo


Whether you plan on writing 50K words in 30 days, for National Novel Writing Month, or are looking to do a personal writing retreat with a goal of “a lot” of words on the page, this is the prep session for you! Both pantsers and planners are more likely to succeed in a challenge like this with some mindful preparation. Now, this doesn’t mean plotting your book to death before November 1st and then no longer being inspired to write it. No. This is about the physical, mental, and writerly things you can do to help achieve your goals and remain motived.

The Living Library- an A.M.A. (Ask Me Anything) Event

Newmarket Lions Hall & Community Centre 200 Doug Duncan Drive, Newmarket, Ontario

Ever get stuck with an  plot, character or industry question and suddenly find yourself lost in “research” online even more confused or overwhelmed by the volume of “helpful” information out there? What if you could talk to someone? Ask them those burning questions and find the guidance you were really looking for?

The WCYR has gathered together 6 local writers and industry professionals who will speak about their experience in a round-robin format, to answer those burning questions. In 15 minute intervals, participants will rotate around the room visiting each professional for a mini-group session. No more than 5 participants will visit during each interval
